Welcome to the District 5000 Global Grants website. On this page, you will find a number of valuable resources for planning and applying for Global Grants. Just click on the menu items on the left for webinars, Power Point Presentations, and other information in the Global Grant application process. More information and training materials can be found on the District Grants Info Page.
 
We hope that every Club in our District will participate in at least one Global Grant. The deadline for committing Club Cash and District Designated Funds (DDF) Allocations to Global Grants is November 1. Clubs should notify the Rotary Foundation Grants Subcommittee Chair, and the Primary Contact Person, by email before the November 1 deadline. November 1 is also the deadline for commitments of DDF allocations and Club matching to Global Grants led by Clubs or Districts outside District 5000. DDF allocations that are not committed to a Global Grant with matching Club Cash will be available to the Clubs sponsoring grants or other Clubs willing to contribute matching cash.
 
You have several options for using your DDF allocation. Here’s how the matching works.
 
The first rule is that you must match DDF commitments 1:1 with Club Cash.
 
Scenario 1. Club Allocation is $1,000—Club matches DDF. Leverage = 3.5
 
Scenario 2: Club Allocation is $1,000—Club contributes DDF + Matching Cash $1,000 + $4,000 Additional Cash
 
Scenario 3: Club Allocation is $1,000—Club contributes only $500 DDF + Matching Cash $500 But Additional $500 Cash (Club commits remaining $500 and Cash to another Global Grant)
 
Scenario 4: Club Allocation is $1,000—Club contributes no DDF, but Cash $5,000
 
Below are listed the Global Grant applications the Committee for last year.  All of the Clubs leading these Grants had asked for participation from other Clubs in District 5000, and Clubs and Districts outside District 5000. Keep in mind that Total Budget amounts are subject to change depending on participation from other Clubs, Sister Clubs, or District outside District 5000.

GG1977740: Renovations, Equipment and Training Project for St. Vincent De Paul school in Cochabamba, Bolivia

Rotary Clubs of Cochabamba-Tunari and Hanalei Bay. Contact Grant leader in D5000 John Oszust <joszust@hawaii.rr.com>.
The San Vicente de Paul Educational Unit is a school that provides basic education (primary level) to socially disadvantaged students, from vulnerable families in the city of Cochabamba. It is located in a central area of the city and students from various areas attend. The school infrastructure has a series of shortcomings, both in the building and in the equipment. The school is located in a house that has been adapted for school use and with the passage of time and continuous use, it has been deteriorating. In addition, there is a large deficit of furniture, especially chairs and tables and students need somewhere to sit and work comfortably while attending classes and studying, the school also needs to conduct training workshops for teachers and parents, and to improve education opportunities for students.
 
General purpose:
 Improve the physical condition, equipment and staff development, and student education opportunities at the San Vicente de Paul Educational Unit.
 
Specific objectives:
1. Condition and refurbish the current infrastructure, to develop academic activities in better conditions.
2. Equip school with the basic equipment required for optimum instruction 
3. Implement a training plan for parents and teachers to improve the teaching-learning process with appropriate new teaching methodologies, so students will benefit.

GG1979882  Malamulo (Malawi) Catchment Area Water Protection
Rotary Clubs of Rotary Clubs of Lembe, Malawi and Honolulu Sunset. Grant leaders Samir El-Swaify selswaify@gmail.com and Richard Zegar <zegarr002@hawaii.rr.com>
The lack of clean and safe water in the catchment area of Malamulo Hospital, Malawi is a serious threat the hospital’s ability to meet the health needs of the community.  The problems are clearly manifested in the increasing number of patients who are seen for diarrheal related diseases; this is particularly noticeable for the most vulnerable population of children under 5 years of age. The need for action has been identified as a high priority by the community health department and leaders of the local communities. Rotarian leaders of the host sponsor have confirmed this urgent need in direct meetings with the Traditional Authority (TA) for the area, the village and group village headmen as well as the various village development committees. Furthermore, these community representatives have requested the Rotary Club’s assistance in addressing it.
We wish to emphasize that the project is aligned to match the UN’s Millennium Sustainable Development Goal # 6 to “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”.  
Target groups and beneficiaries
We are targeting the villages of Kang’oma, Nkunda (where the project has already started) Ndauza, Tomas, Kwethemule, Mafunga, Heleman, Nkusa, Chaoneka, Kaipsa, Andinyaza, Mangwalala and Kachimanga. In Nkunda we have already successfully protected 7 water points and the response from this has been extremely positive. We are expecting to see a drastic reduction in patient’s seen for water borne diseases from this village this rainy season. With the rainy season approaching these people will be able to access clean and safe water and thus maintain their health.  The groups that will most benefit from this project are also those who are currently most at risk, the vulnerable populations of the elderly and those children under 5 years of age. 
A total of nearly 90 water sites need protection within the watershed. To start the project, priority villages, and the number of water sites to be protected at each are as follows: Nkunda 1, Mafunga 3, Ndauza 3, Chaoneka 2, Khwethemule 3, Heleman 1, Nkusa 3, Thomasi 3, Mangwalala 3, Kangoma 1, and Kaipysa 3.
Total Project cost $57,000
1.       Protecting 30 unprotected water points= $21,000
2.       Rehabilitating 12 broken boreholes= $4,800
3.       Project vehicle and fuel= $9,300
4.       Drilling and installation of 4 new boreholes= $20,000
5.       Chlorine for 6-month rainy season= $1,200
6.       Technical tools/software for GIS mapping water points and data collection= $700
The Rotary Club of Honolulu Sunset is allocating $3,500 to the project—with matching this will cover $12,500 of the cost.
